Hardware add on devices like stand alone Ethernet or Accessory socket devices.

I am developing a stand alone Ethernet display and minimal control and it would be handy to have a section which is focused in that area to post code and ideas.

How about a standalone Virtual  Back Panel, as a cross platform app that could run on Apple/Linux/Windows that would allow you in conjunction with DAX/VAC, and VSP to route audio, CAT control and other stuff , from one PC to another over ethernet. So you could network say a Flex-5000 or SDR-1000 running on one PC to another one, Kind of like a remote  X Desktop with the extra data streamed in. That way you could run SmartSDR on one PC and easily connect it to say FLDigi running on a Linux box, and stream both to a remote desktop running on an iMac. Sort of a virtual Hamshack running in a window with all the rear panel jacks exposed on a virtual patch panel. 
 
I dream big when i take the time to dream. Sounds like a new project, hopefully something new to play with. I second the Idea of another category or wiki or github for collaboration on this kind of idea. Sort of a Virtual Workshop where the 3rd party developers can hang out.
